Hello
Yes it's a little tricky to compress this game
the problem is on files basis.pak and patch_00*.pak
the are compressed with zipcrypto (ntfs+pkware+encrypt)

what I've done:
uncompress basis.pak in a temporary folder "basis-temp"
(keep structure and everything like in the basis archive)
for uncompress you need a password : oKoo$]bnGTKJLMNBA9A

I optimized compression with software linked to each kind of file
(wavpack for wav, oggre for ogg, lepton for jpg, xtool for png, lolz for dds, lzma2 for xml/txt/inifile razor for dll/exe ect)

during the install/decompression process, I made a batch file to rebuild the basis.pak

7z.exe -mx5 -tzip -spe -poKoo$]bnGTKJLMNBA9A a basis.pak .\basis-temp\*
then delete basis-temp

at the end the structure of game is more or less the same but CRC will be different.
The game do not check crc so it works.
I do not find a way to rebuild exactly the same basis.pak as the beguining.
As I explain during compress/encryption, there is some random caracter are added in the packed file.

because they are random, you cannot easily use hdiff or Xdelta, the diff file is almost as big as the original file...

there is probably an another way, using quickbms or header manipulation, but I'm not enough skilled to find a solution

edit: I forgot :
you must have the syrilic characters in windows otherwise some files will be corrupted.

Well, I think I'll leave this one game alone . . .

I made a custom method using DSG. I just tested with my own installer and it works, but not tested with CIU.

However you need to add cmd commands to Setup.ini if you're using CIU.

Code:
[CMDCommands]
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion EnableExtensions
cd /D "{app}\basis_out"
"{app}\7z.exe" a -mx5 -tzip -poKoo$]bnGTKJLMNBA9A "{app}\basis.pak" "*"
cd /D "{app}\patch_002_out"
"{app}\7z.exe" a -mx5 -tzip -poKoo$]bnGTKJLMNBA9A "{app}\patch_002.pak" "*"
cd /D "{app}\patch_003_out"
"{app}\7z.exe" a -mx5 -tzip -poKoo$]bnGTKJLMNBA9A "{app}\patch_003.pak" "*"
cd /D "{app}\patch_004_out"
"{app}\7z.exe" a -mx5 -tzip -poKoo$]bnGTKJLMNBA9A "{app}\patch_004.pak" "*"
cd /D "{app}\patch_005_out"
"{app}\7z.exe" a -mx5 -tzip -poKoo$]bnGTKJLMNBA9A "{app}\patch_005.pak" "*"
cd /D "{app}"
del /F /S /Q "{app}\7z.dll"
del /S /F /Q "{app}\7z.exe"
rd /s /q "{app}\basis_out"
rd /s /q "{app}\patch_002_out"
rd /s /q "{app}\patch_003_out"
rd /s /q "{app}\patch_004_out"
rd /s /q "{app}\patch_005_out"
TIMEOUT 3
:End
endlocal
Using fast lolz preset it is 10.2GB compressed.

Keep in mind the game files will not be crc perfect after this step, but the game will work anyways.

yes it's more or less what I've done

with some other setup (wavpack, oggre, brunsli ect)

i've got 9.85GB with installer (ASIS)

installation time 4 minutes + 3 minutes for post installation (unwavpack, oggre, rebuild .pak , I use mparallel for speedup the process)

Great dial, now it will compress in 3 DVDs:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Selected ARC/DS method for Data1-01.bin was: oggre
- Selected ARC/DS method for Data2-01.bin was: xtool:mflac,l8
- Selected ARC/DS method for Data3-01.bin was: xtool:c128mb:mreflate:mpng:d1:dd3:l10,d128mb
- Selected ARC/DS method for Data4-01.bin was: xtool:dd3:l10,d128mb
- Selected ARC/DS method for Data5-01.bin was: 1

- Overall input size: 25.03 GB
- Overall output size: 12.11 GB (Ratio 48.39%)
- Installation folder size: 25.03 GB
- Data1-01.bin file size: 458.86 MB
- Data2-01.bin file size: 3.55 GB
- Data3-01.bin file size: 263.16 MB
- Data4-01.bin file size: 7.86 GB
- Data5-01.bin file size: 489.72 KB
- Overall conversion time: 00:28:45
- Overall conversion discs: 3 DVD5
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Install Time: 00:08:04 (HDD on HDD)

But it seems becuse of changes (files converted to folders) game is no more executable.
Also installed game folder size is now 25.1GB (instead of 16GB)

Note: I use cracked version, so maybe that's the problem!

hello
you have to rebuild *.pak after decompression

if you have 25GB you have some file in double or basis.pak not right rebuild

The process is :
-unpack *.pak file in root folder
-REMOVE *.pak
-compress

the after recompress :
rebuild *.pak, remove temporary folder

for me :
-original game size : 16.4Go
-before compression and after pre-compression : 24.5G0
-Game compressed : 9.7 Go
-after decompression/install/post-traitment : 16.4Go

You have to rebuild the game files after installation. That's what the [CMDCommands] is for.

New Setup.exe must be shared with the changes.
